Iqra aspires to full-time employment
Iqra joined the Links to Work programme aiming to get support with getting into full-time employment. She has always been in temporary positions and lacked confidence which has held her back. Iqra also needed support in creating a CV, gaining interview skills and in the past has struggled due to her Dyslexia.
How Links to Work helped
Iqra accessed support from Samantha personal consultant, she firstly looked at building Iqra’s confidence. Iqra attended the Links to Work two-week course and felt this gave her the boost in confidence and motivation she needed to start applying for roles.
Iqra received one to one support to help her with her jobsearch such as updating her CV, writing covering letters and online applications. Since joining Links to Work Iqra has seen improvements in her confidence and her personal skills and has become more open and confident in herself and her abilities.
Getting the Job
Iqra was invited to numerous interviews and felt prepared enough to attend them all. She successfully secured a part-time job in retail which enables her to build her confidence while being in the workplace. Her next career goal is to find a full-time position. We will continue to work with Iqra and support her where we can to help her to achieve her goal.
